An International British Literary Agency

Established in 2008 by Isabel Atherton, Creative Authors Limited is a British agency based in New York City. The agency represents titles with strong commercial potential in fashion, biography (especially music), autobiography, crafts, health, cookery and children's picture books. Other areas of interest include history, natural history, popular culture, true crime and select fiction. We are also looking for talented, enthusiastic and adaptable illustrators.

About Isabel

Isabel Atherton is an experienced literary agent with an eye for commercial potential, representing prize-winning authors and illustrators from around the world. Isabel holds a BA (Hons) in English Literature and an MA in Contemporary Approaches to English Studies. Both were studied at Goldsmiths College, University of London.

All authors are individually handled by Isabel Atherton and Creative Authors prides itself on a personal and highly efficient service. Creative Authors aims to take first time writers and established authors to a new level of recognition. With all our authors we aim to establish a life-time relationship. However, we are highly selective and only take on new writers whose work we genuinely love.

Creative Authors is a transatlantic agency. We sell directly to the US and UK, cutting out the need for a subagent in these territories.

“Isabel opened the doors that led to my work being published. Throughout, she has offered honest opinions and patient coaching – all without ever losing the courtesy, gentility and decency that makes her a pleasure to know. I owe her deeply!”
